    how does it look. i like how i can get a new set of 16.5 hummer tires, and that i dont have to grind the hell outta my 60 to get them on there. but i dont want dually hubs. i was gunna purchase some hummer tires but i dont know if it'll look right. anybody got any pics its on a blazer d60sw/14bltff disc. will a 36.5/12.5 tire fit on a 16.5/9.75 rim???

    Hummer tires are great because they are fairly cheap and easy to come by. The problem is that 16.5 rims don't hold a bead very well and you can lose a bead if you air down too much. I would suggest going with a 16" or 17" rim, bigger tire selection aren't as prone to bead slippage. I got a set of H2 rims for my 74 k5...17x8.5 and thinking about adding Staun beadlocks.

    are looking to put hummer tires on your truck or hummer wheels? hummer wheels are 16.5 but are double beadlocked so you won't lose a bead with them

    without using drw hubs you may have some clearance issues, that's why people have used spacers usually 1.5" or 2" and they don't look bad at all. PM readymix he's got 2" spacers and humvee wheels with 39.5" Iroks and his truck looks sweet.

    As for mounting them you should be able to mount them yourself. I'm sure people that have humvee wheels can give some tips/tricks on how to mount em yourself.

    Mount them yourself with the HMMWV rims. It only takes 20-30 minutes per tire if you use air tools.

    We put a set on a 88 K-5 and put the DW hubs on the front 60,but he didnt use spacers on the rear SW 14 bolt.The wheels on the back set inside the wheelwell,so the quarter panel would hit before the tire would.He had rear disc also.

    i have the DRW dana 60 front and would be willing to swap hubs with someone who has the SRW style front hubs if anyone was interested? I'll pay the shipping for my end and whomever can pay the shipping for their end.

    eighty4z28@yahoo.com if interested

    Got mine from Offroad Overstock. Look in the vendor section on the forums.

    Edit: No need for longer wheel studs.

    Would my 38.5x16 fit ok on a set of hummer wheels? I have 3/4 ton axles 10B 8 lug front and 14BFF rear just drums. And how much would it be to recenter the hummer rims?

    H1 wheels are 16.5, so no, a 16" tire won't work. Centers themselves range about 35.00 each. A place close to here charges the same to re-center the new centers. If done on "off road only" wheels, then I would suggest just welding in the new centers on your own.

    Sry that was just how tall and wide they are. I have 38.5x16x16.5 Tsl swampers and was wondering if these wide tires would matter? And this truck is my DD so I would have to get them recenterd. Where could I find a set of these rims?

    When did definitions change? I remember when you put a tire on a rim to have a wheel. When did a wheel and a rim become the same thing?

    Makes me feel so old:mad: you whippersnappers!:bow::bow::haha:

    16 wide is a bit wider than I'd prefer for the H1's, but it's not un-doable. You could get away with it easier by just running a little less air pressure, so that the center section of the tire doesn't crown out too bad. I think the width of the H1's is 8-3/4 or 9-1/4.. somewhere right around there. So, something like a 12.50 or 14.50 wide, would be a little more ideal. You could have your H1's widened at the same time you have them recentered, but you would have to go with wider inserts, and ditch the stock mag inserts. USA 6x6 does make wider inserts.

    I chose to stay with the stock width, and will just run a tire closer to the rims width. I didn't want to add the cost of going wider, as well as getting another set of inserts.

    As far as where to get them in your area I have no idea. Around here it easy to find them. There are guys who buy them by the trailer load, and sell them cheap.
